Joint venture partner of Germany’s Belectric Solarkraftwerke GmbH has tendered successfully the single largest ground-mounted solar power project in Turkey with an AC connection capacity of 45 MW.

Including this one, three projects developed by Belectric Kuloğlu Güneş Elektrik Santrallari Teknolojisi A. Ş. won recent tenders with a combined AC connection capacity of 77.4 MW, 14% of the total tendered capacity (545 MW), thus ranking the venture the number one winner of the first licensing round in the country, the German company said.

Cenap Kuloğlu, co-founder and managing director of Belectric Kuloğlu, said the company and its partners committed a contribution fee of USD 325.000 per MW less than committed in overall average by the other top 5–ranked participants.

“We are looking forward to implement our latest solar power plant products with grid stabilizing technology in Turkey within the system integration works for these projects… The next potential step in this direction is the application of Belelectric’s Energy Buffer Units (EBU), providing the most important ancillary service for grid operation: primary frequency response,” said Bernhard Beck, executive chairman of Belelectric.
